Pipe and tank wrap
November 30, 2000
CrimpWrap, a new pipe and tank wrap from this Pennsylvania company, is designed to insulate vessels and large-diameter pipes with service temperatures from 35° to 850° F. It uses European crimp technology to provide the thermal and compressible properties found in rigid fiberglass board, while remaining flexible enough to wrap pipes and vessels covering a wide range of sizes. It can be used as a substitute for preformed pipe insulation and traditional tank wrap. CrimpWrap helps control heat loss and gain and provides hot surface personnel protection during system operation. Made of a continuous fiberglass blanket, it eliminates the common problem of strip delamination during the fabrication and installation of traditional tank wrap.
